One Block Down and Fila Present “Ciao Biella”
One Block Down presents a capsule collection with Fila that evolves upon the iconic legacy of Italy’s leader in sportswear.
The collection integrates a leopard print motif which has been digitized and overworked to personify the boldness of Italian street style, and here meets the retro graphic of the original 1988 FILA Magic Line. One Block Down ultimately italianizes the collection with the recurring tagline “Ciao Biella,” which hijacks the common Italian greeting to reveal the brand’s origins in Biella, Piedmont, where FILA was founded in 1911.
The fusion of these historical elements and the contemporary Fila identity render the collection a multi-seasonal essential for any streetwear aficionado, and includes an all-over printed anorak, a sweater, long sleeve, reversible bucket hat, track pants, and a DSTR97 sneaker in black and white.
Here, One Block Down revives the nostalgia of archival sportswear through an original vaporwave print and the ubiquitous “Made in Italy” aesthetic. The collection will be available exclusively from oneblockdown.it and One Block Down’s brick and mortar stores in Milan and Rome from Wednesday 18 December, 2019.
